Visited earlier today & can't say I was that impressed. Staff & setting was very nice though food wasn't all that great. My mum had the tempura chicken, which was lovely, though my fatty bacon, Brie & cranberry sandwich came on stale dry bread with no butter or spread. Carrot & coriander soup tasted alright but was a thick as... More

Have eaten here a few times in recent months. Food is very good and is not overpriced. We'll be back.

Nice food for the kids. Waitress had a face like fizz, was more like a bouncer than a waitress. Shame. Just treat people like they're customers spending money.

A great Cafe/Bistro to stop off at if your cycling or walking along the canal. Friendly staff. And the menu was easy to understand and great value. Its great that you can relax out in the sun - very peaceful! Also highly recommend the Caffia Coffee we enjoyed - will be back for another coffee soon...

A super cafe to visit if you're walking or cycling along the canal. Friendly staff, a reasonable menu which is well priced, and tables where you can sit outside in the sunshine. Dogs are well catered for with several water bowls left out for them.

Took my in-laws here for lunch to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. They usually go to a competitor but we twisted their arm to try Bridge 49 as we had been before and enjoyed it. Really impressed with the varied menu, really helpful staff and tasty food. You never know, the in-laws might be converted!

The food is good. the service is good, our waitress, Susan?, couldn't have been nicer and seems to know her way around the locality. The one area that needs looked at is access. If you're arriving by car, there's no problem but if you're walking along the canal, the restaurant is on the far bank and the access to the... More
